“where Downton Abbey is filmed”
Highclere Castle is a beautiful building and a warm, welcoming home to visitors and guests at events and celebrations held here. Apart from exploring the Castle, the Egyptian Exhibition fascinates adults and children, whilst the surrounding Grounds and Gardens provide peace and tranquillity . When you visit, you will recognise many rooms from “Downton Abbey." You will see the Drawing Room in which Maggie Smith delivered many a withering comment to some unfortunate relation. In addition you can also find Tutankhamun in the cellars.We are open for between 60 and 70 days a year to public visitors, but create many special tours, charity events as well as holding events such as concerts and country fairs in the park.
This is a beautiful home that will put you right in the middle of Downton Abbey. The land surrounding the house is beautiful and peaceful. The gift shop and cafe are a must. This isn't necessarily the best place for a young child but good for teens and up. Very crowded first thing in the morning but still great for a photo op.
